Optical Fiber Solutions for OTDR Training

Posted by Kevin Miller on Wed, Nov 14, 2012 @ 14:11 PM

Learning to operate an OTDR properly is a critical skill for field technicians managing and servicing fiber optic networks.  The OTDR is used frequently to determine length and loss characteristics, including testing optical fibers for faults and related issues that can negatively affect network performance.

Fiber Network Simulation – 4 Tips for Improving Test Results

Posted by Kevin Miller on Tue, Jun 28, 2011 @ 10:06 AM

Engineers performing fiber optic network simulation testing with the goal of certifying that their equipment will work as intended once deployed in the field, often require the use of optical fiber spools to complete these procedures.  Since it is crucial these tests produce both correct and reliable results, below are some tips for ensuring the most positive results.

Importance of Using Reliable Fiber Network Simulation Platforms

Posted by Kevin Miller on Fri, Jul 16, 2010 @ 13:07 PM

In many cases, the primary focus of a fiber network simulation platform is on the electro-optical equipment at both ends of the fiber optic link.  Since the purpose of network simulators is to evaluate the DUT (Device Under Test) equipment, it only makes sense that this is where the attention will be. However, it is a crucial mistake to forget about both the stability and consistency of the test fiber because the DUT test results (performance, pass/ fail, etc) totally depend on knowing that the optical fiber characteristics are consistent and very reliable.
